4-wire Serial Interface Real Time Clock IC


Data Sheet

The R2043x is a CMOS real-time clock IC connected to the CPU by four signal lines, CE, SCLK, SI, SO, and configured to perform serial transmission of time and calendar data to the CPU. The periodic interrupt circuit is configured to generate interrupt signals with six selectable interrupts ranging from 0.5 seconds to 1 month. The 2 alarm interrupt circuits generate interrupt signals at preset times. As the oscillation circuit is driven under constant voltage, fluctuation of the oscillator frequency due to supply voltage is small, and the time keeping current is small (TYP. 0.45µA at 3V). The oscillation halt sensing circuit can be used to judge the validity of internal data in such events as power-on; The supply voltage monitoring circuit is configured to record a drop in supply voltage below two selectable supply voltage monitoring threshold settings. The 32.768kHz clock output function (N-channel open drain output) is intended to output sub-clock pulses for the external microcomputer. The oscillation adjustment circuit is intended to adjust time counts with high precision by correcting deviations in the oscillation frequency of the crystal oscillator. Since the package for these ICs are TSSOP10G (4.0x2.9x1.0: R2043T) or QFN023023-16 (2.3x2.3x0.4:R2043L), high density mounting of ICs on boards is possible.
